The gift of a Catholic education is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

It is the goal of the Diocese of Rochester that no child be denied a Catholic education due to financial constraints. Financial assistance for tuition is available and is based on individual school resources and tuition rates. We work with you to determine an affordable tuition and offer financial aid wherever possible.

Education Hardship Fund

Catholic education offers a unique and exceptional faith-based, academically sound experience for children of all faiths. We open our doors to children Pre-K through eighth grade and welcome all. Some families experience unexpected financial hardship that makes paying tuition difficult, if not impossible, for a short period of time. Some examples are: house fire, serious illness and treatment, loss of a job etc. This unique hardship fund assists families throughout our diocese and we welcome your heartfelt assistance.
